Simply Red ‎– Come To My Aid (12″)

A forgotten classic from Simply Red and from their early days, from 1985 and only their second single. Showing how tight and funky the band was and under the controls of Stewart Levine.

A cover of Bill Wither’s classic “Granma’s Hands” shows the bands soul roots and the funk continues on the mid-tempo of “Valentine”, rare but a quality B-side written by Hucknall.

One thought on “Simply Red ‎– Come To My Aid (12″)”

  1. Again, another amazing song that’s just disappeared off the cultural radar. Of all their compilation packages, it’s only on two of the six them … and that’s because they’re multi disc affairs (Song Book 4 discs / The Very Best 2 discs). What a shame, it’s a corker!
